“For years now I've enjoyed walking the indoor track in the Walton Lifetime Health Complex, away from Arkansas' constantly fluctuating weather. My one complaint to date has been the lack of air conditioning in the multi-court gynasium area. This new renovation will be so wonderful. We will finally have air conditioning!”

“I play intramurals and pick-up games in the health complex all the time. It's a central component to the great community we have in the student body. The renovation project will help foster more fun and great friendships in students when its finished.”
